Spring Break...

One more day of school and then its Spring Break!! Not that I don't want to keep going to school cause I totally do, but I get to go see my Texas family for that whole week! We will eat good food, laugh, hang out and be lazy! Hopefully the drive won't be too bad for the kids and me. We'll be driving to OK to stay with my sister Beckie in Oklahoma City Friday night and then Saturday morning will travel the rest of the way to Dallas. So it will be a 11ish hour drive and that's around 7 hours the frist day. I've driven 6 in a row when I've gone to Iowa before so I'm thinking I'll be good, as long as I can get some sleep. Hopefully the babies will sleep a good chunk of the time, but not too much so it doesn't mess up the sleeping schedule, but if so it'll probably just be for a couple of days.


I'm ready to see my fam!

I haven't blogged in a while, so I thought you lovely folks who do read this might want to know what's going on and how me and my family are doing.

School is great! It's only been a week, but I am sooo happy to finally be glad to wake up and get ready to go somewhere I want to be. Knowing I'm doing things I WANT to learn and loving every bit of it. So far we have learend manicures, pedicures, spiral perms, and will start on more soon. Pretty basic and easy right now, but soon will start to get more intense and even more fun. I can't wait until I can start to take clients. I will get to when the new class starts in May, possibly sooner than that because apparently our class has started things sooner then most of the other classes did, so we'll see. You all will have to come see me and get something nice and relaxing when I can start to take clients.
   The best part is that I get stuff wayyy cheap and free. I got my eyebrows and eyelashes tinted and eyebrows waxed for $3.50! Now that's good....

Besides that spring break will start in a couple  of weeks and we will be off to Dallas! I'm super excited and can't wait to see my family! Hang out and chill, do whatever comes to mind, eat good food, laugh and be lazy!

First day of school.....

So today was officially the first day of cosmetology school, as opposed to last Monday when I went thinking it was the first day. Which by the way was a tad embarrassing, but I got over it!

Most of the day was sitting in the little room listening to the instructor read to us everything about the school, what to expect and things of that. To say the least it gave me a headache, but at least I paid attention and now know what to expect. And what I  need to expect is Awesomeness! There are some things I'll have to be strict to myself about, but nothing too big of a deal. We have to maintain a 90% attendance record and a 80% grade average. Hopefully that's not hard to do, but I think I'll get the hang of things and get a routine down that it will fly by quickly.

 We are going to start some little things tomorrow, like braiding and pedicures, but it's something and I'm glad to be doing something hands on, on the second day. I'm so ready to learn from others, get more experience, start taking appointments and get some tips!

Oh and the best part about it is not only will I get FREE hair cuts and any styling I want done. I can get haircoloring done for $5, waxing for $1 and tons of other things, but those are the main things I'll most likely be doing. Basically I just have to pay for the product being used and not the service! A lot of stuff there is cheaper for people who book appointments anyway, because of it being a school. That being said if any of you want to get something done, once I can take appointments and start doing better make an appointment with ME!

School supplies..

Ok so I've decided to put Juliana in summer school this summer so that she can get a head start on what Kindergarten will be like and a jump start on some of the things they'll be doing so she won't have trouble understanding certain things. Not that I think she's going to have a problem doing this, but I just want her to feel as comfortable as possible and not have any issues on her first day of the school year. She's super excited to start, and we even started looking at "cool" backpacks. I know exciting right?

So today I went onto the schools website to see the school supply list and I think it's stupid. Almost everything they want your child to have is Large this, name brand that. I can't put her name on her stuff, and they want us to get things that are obviously not for the kids. Such as package of dry eraser markers, 2 large boxes of ziploc bags (1 gallon, 1 quart), 3 large bottles of hand sanitizer, etc. I'm sorry if I sound selfish or whatever you want to call it, but I don't think its the responsibilities of the parents to provide the teachers supplies!! Make the school or the teacher. When I was  in school I remember getting the list but getting to pick what kinds of crayons and folders I wanted. Now they have it down to color, brand and what it has to look like. Not fun, not cool. Am I being too picky or what? I don't mind providing for my kid, but I'm  not the teachers mom and I'm not the other students responsibility.

Just Dance....

So the church I go to, Woodcrest in Columbia, is doing this dance on MU the middle of all the students walking around, going from class to class, on their breaks, doing everyday "student" things. The cool part is that it will be unexpected to all who aren't dancing. What?!Why? You may ask.... to get the word out. They're going to start the music and among all these people ONE person will start doing this dance. Then a few minutes will pass and FIFTY people will be dancing, then ONE HUNDRED, then FIVE HUNDRED. When the music is done, we're just going to walk off like nothing happened. I can only imagine the looks on all of the people around who have no idea this is going to happen. It's totally going to be on the news, which will be the word will get spread out to come visit this "crazy dancing" church which in return will hopefully bring tons of people to come check it out, hear about God and change lives.
  When I first heard about it I was like that's kind of weird no one is going to know what the heck just happend, they won't know where we are from, or why we're doing it, so it's not going to really do anything. But then I thought about how much of an impact it can be and I just had to be a part of it. It's a super easy dance, everyone will be doing the same dance, and it's only going to last like 5 min, so why not be a part of this opportunitiy! Here's the l ink to the dance if any of you local people want to do it with me let me know!!
